November 14, 2014

Today in class, students read sample STAAR expository essays and then critiqued them for what worked and what didn’t. If you were absent, please come make this up with me – I don’t have electronic copies of those materials.

Homework for this weekend (due Monday) is to write one sentence for every vocabulary word for the Glass Castle List 1 (it’s under the Vocabulary section of the website, in case you misplaced yours). The sentences should demonstrate that you understand the meanings of the words.

And as a reminder, your recipe project is due on Tuesday.

Have a good weekend!
